Mobility - Transport

[2023] Sustainable Mobility and Transport

On Thursday 25 May at 3:00 PM (CEST), join us for the eMag #5 with Afrik 21 on sustainable mobility and transport in Africa.

eMag #5 : What is the place of electric mobility in sustainable transport systems in Africa?

In Africa, the implementation of sustainable and inclusive development models in the transport sector is essential for an effective transition adapted to African territories. In a context of growing demographics and urbanization where access to energy remains a central issue, the rise of electro-mobility creates opportunities but also raises several challenges.

Are electro-mobilities adapted to African contexts? How can they be made more accessible and inclusive?

The objective of this eMag is to expose the obstacles and highlight the solutions provided by electric mobility to accelerate the low-carbon transition of transport systems in Africa in an inclusive manner.
